Dickinson is at her aphoristic best in poems like this, where she shines a light on the complexities of human desire. Interestingly, though Dickinson did not seek publication — her father disdained Women of Letters — this poem was published anonymously in an anthology called A Masque of Poets. By turning her back on notoriety Dickinson may have been trying to protect her good name.
Or perhaps she feared editorial input because she had already been stung. So the abandon of this celebrated Dickinson love poem is not out of place and can be read for what it is: a passionate, exuberant and loving cry from the heart. The poem has the trademark up-note ending, so that the reader must guess where the breakdown leads to — the heaven of well-being, or the hell of continued mental anguish.
There is a theory that Dickinson, like her nephew Ned, was epileptic; she definitely suffered eye trouble and, as we know, she had agoraphobic tendencies. Any of these, or just plain old depression, might have sparked this poem.
Who are you? The narrator may be nobody but she makes herself somebody with that capital N. Here is another poem about notoriety and the public eye. This is one that appealed hugely to me as a child for its cheekiness and for that unexpected frog.

This is my favourite Emily Dickinson poem. Its warmth and positivity speak to my gut every time. Was she qualifying hope in some private way? This is a poem I studied at school at about the age of ten. Dickinson valued the musicality of words and she loved a hymnal beat. Read this one to your young friends. This may be tied in with the notion that because Dickinson was reclusive, she was also angsty and nun-like. The fact that her text of the Beatitudes still has the same eight or ninefold structure as the Beatitudes in the Gospel, but is far more detailed, is characteristic of her writings and her imagination.
Her supposed visions describe parables, miracles and episodes in the life of Jesus not present in any of the synoptic Gospels. On February 16, , she wrote her account of the Trial of Jesus by Caiphas. In the synoptic Gospels, Luke places the trial after daybreak, while Matthew and Mark refer to it as taking place at night. Valtorta's version has two trials, one at night and the other after daybreak. The second trial is prompted by Gamaliel 's insistence that the time and place of the night trial is against Jewish judicial procedures, and his demand for a new trial after daybreak.
Another example is the episode she wrote on February 28, It reports that in preparation for his Passion, Jesus visited the town of Kerioth to say farewell and performed a miracle, curing a woman described as "Anne of Kerioth" on her deathbed.
In this episode Jesus instructs the Anne to forever tend to and comfort Mary of Simon - who Valtorta argued was the mother of Judas Iscariot and who would supposedly be heartbroken upon the betrayal by her son and the deaths of Jesus and Judas in the near future. The narrative of The Poem of the Man-God includes a number of observations of the positions of the heavenly bodies. For instance, in episode written on December 11, Valtorta wrote of a night Jesus spent at Gadara :. And Sapphirine Venus covered with diamonds, and Mars of pale ruby and the topaz of Jupiter In Purdue University physicist Lonnie VanZandt analyzed these events to estimate a date for the event described.

Using a computer simulation, VanZandt noted that the only possibilities for the observation Valtorta described during the month of March would be AD31 and AD33, and after considering other elements in the narrative concluded that March AD33 was the only possibility. According to VanZandt the estimation of the joint observability of these three stars and the position of the moon during that time would have been almost impossible without a computer system.

Maria Valtorta was at first reluctant to have her notebooks published, but on the advice of her priest, [ who? According to Rookey, at the meeting Pius reportedly told the three priests; "Publish this work as it is. There is no need to give an opinion about its origin, whether it be extraordinary or not. Who reads it, will understand. One hears of many visions and revelations. I will not say they are all authentic; but there are some of which it could be said that they are.
Bishop Roman Danylak says that Cardinal Edouard Gagnon , writing on 31 October to the Maria Valtorta Research Center, spoke of "the kind of official Imprimatur granted before witnesses by the Holy Father in ", while writer David Michael Lindsey reports Cardinal Gagnon as saying: "This judgment by the Holy Father in was an official Imprimatur of the type given before witnesses. The permission of the author's ordinary or of the ordinary of the place of publication or of printing was required for publishing such books and had to be given in writing,   According to Bishop Danylak, the publishers of the first edition purporting to present private visions and revelations, had not submitted the work to prior ecclesiastical approval.
